Police in Spokane made an arrest Oct. 29 in a case involving sex trafficking in Seattle and the murder of a 19-year-old man who was beaten and stabbed after being tied up and put into the trunk of a car.

In October 2020, 60-year-old John Eisenman discovered that his underage daughter’s boyfriend had allegedly sold her into a sex trafficking organization in Seattle for $1,000.

Eisenman traveled to Seattle and rescued and returned his daughter to Spokane that same month.

In November 2020, Spokane police believe Eisenman learned that the boyfriend, 19-year-old Aaron Sorenson, would be in Airway Heights, west of Spokane.

Police said Eisenman confronted Sorenson, where he zip-tied him and put him in the trunk of a car.

Court documents said Eisenman threw a cinder block at Sorenson’s head and stabbed him several times in the stomach, killing him.

Sorenson’s body was left in the trunk, and the car was abandoned in North Spokane County for nearly a full year.

In October 2021, police believe a third party, apparently without knowing there was a year-old deceased body in the trunk, drove the car back to Spokane and left it on East Everett Avenue.

On Oct. 22, Spokane police received calls from another party that discovered the body in the trunk while rummaging through the abandoned car.

Spokane police arrested Eisenman on a first-degree murder charge.
